New Tomb Raider Face?

A new Tomb Raider is in town....
She is hot, sexy, and by far the most qualified female ever
to fill the role of........Lara Croft.


Quote:
Move over, Angelina Jolie. There's a new Lara Croft in town, and she's a 23-year-old gymnast from South London,
Tomb Raider publisher Eidos announced this week.
Ever since actress Rhona Mitra first took on the role of Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft in 1997,
Eidos has sought real-life counterparts for its acrobatic archaeologist heroine, and they've helped propel the video game series
to worldwide sales topping 32 million. Up until now the British publisher's picks have tended to be models or, like Jolie,
movie stars, but Alison Carroll might just be the first Croft to have the physical abilities
to do her famously acrobatic opposite number justice.


ALISON CARROL AS LARA CROFT




Carroll boasts 12 years of gymnastics training and numerous honors representing Great Britain in sporting displays.
Although her Lara role won't involve any movie work, she'll still be kept sufficiently busy traveling the world promoting
the latest Tomb Raider game, Underworld, to allow her to quit her day job -- as a receptionist.
"It's unbelievable how realistic [Lara's] movements are in Tomb Raider: Underworld and it's so gratifying to be able to
use my years of gymnastic training to portray such a beloved character," Carroll said in a press release.
Although Carroll's more than able to match Croft kick for kick, she's still undergoing a training regime that includes
weapons classes in Eastern Europe, survival technique instruction from British SAS troops,
and -- naturally -- a crash course in archaeology.
First it was Rhona Mitra, then came Tia Carrera,
next was Angelina Jolie, now it's Allison Carrol?

First off she does bear a resemblence to the video game
heroine. In Marvman's opinion, Rhona was the best look-alike



and now we got perhaps the best athlete of them all....
Hope theres a new Tomb Raider movie in the works.
One of the best game to movie adaptations in Marvman's
opinion.

What do you think of the new face to portray Lady Lara Croft?

Rockn.
